Wicks said of the couple’s nuptials, “It’s true when people say your wedding day goes by in a flash. We had the best day ever with our close family and friends. The venue was perfect, we were blessed with sunshine. We had fun fair rides, food trucks with our dream menu, A G&T bar & had gelato & frozen daqs for the win. The DJ was absolutely lit too. He kept the dance floor packed until 1am. Wish I could do it all over again. But I now know what it means to want to stick together and to love someone enough to want to marry them. I asked Rosie to marry me and luckily she said yes. It’s my goal in life to be committed and loyal to Rosie and Indie and always be there for them.”
When announcing the couple’s engagement, Wicks noted that he never thought that he would believe in marriage because his parents were constantly separating and getting back together.
In January 2017, Wicks told the Daily Mirror about he and Jones’ future plans saying, “She’s definitely The One. But some things you have to keep for yourself. I live on social media every day, so the only thing I have that’s private really is me and my girlfriend.”
